Baba C. Vemuri received the PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1987. He joined the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1987 and is currently a university research foundation professor of computer and information sciences and engineering. He was a coprogram chair of the 11th IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2007). He has been an area chair and a program committee member of several IEEE conferences. He was an associate editor for several journals, including the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (from 1992 to 1996) and the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (from 1997 to 2003). He is currently an associate editor for the Journal of Medical Image Analysis and the Journal of Computer Vision and Image Understanding. His research interests include medical image analysis, computational vision, modeling for vision and graphics, and applied mathematics. For the last several years, his research work has primarily focused on information geometric methods. Along this theme, he has been developing algorithms for the analysis of diffusion weighted MRI and diffusion tensor MRI, 3D image segmentation, unimodal and multimodal image (rigid+nonrigid) registration, nonrigid registration of 3D point sets, metric learning, and large margin classifiers. He has published more than 100 refereed journal articles and conference proceedings on medical image analysis, computer vision, graphics, and applied mathematics. He is a fellow of the IEEE and ACM. He received the US National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award (NSF RIA) in 1988 and the Whitaker Foundation Award in 1994. He was a recipient of the Best Peer Reviews at the Third European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV 1994), the Best Poster Award at the International Conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI 2001), as well as at IPMI 2005.
